Now that more and more people in our society are working in offices or some other type of desk job, back issues being caused by sitting in a desk chair all day are becoming a much bigger issue than in previous years. Believe it or not, one of the most common causes of back pain involves people getting out of a chair incorrectly. It seems like a easy and normal thing, but many people are actually doing it improperly. By doing it wrong they are putting too much pressure on the discs in the spine. This week's Back Pain Relief Tip is about the proper way to stand up out of a chair. It is very simple and can be done in three easy steps:

Step 1: Sit in a chair and scoot to the front edge, as close as you can.
Step 2: While keeping them firmly on the ground, move your feet underneath your body as much as possible. This way they are supporting your body weight instead of your lower back.
Step 3: Use your hips and legs to stand up!
By standing up in this manner you avoid flexion that puts too much pressure on your back and can lead to back problems!
